Forró for All: Featuring Rose Moraes and Rob Curto

Friday, October 12, 2018

The trio is led by accordionist Rob Curto, originally from New York City. An important Forró ambassador in the united states, Curto has introduced many music lovers to Northeastern Brazilian Music. He was an original member of the band Forró in the Dark with Mauro Refosco (David Byrne, Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Smokey Hormel (Beck). Hailing from south of Sao Paulo, charismatic vocalist Rose Moraes has entertained thousands of music lovers with her “Roots of Brazil” concerts. She has performed widely in Switzerland, Poland, Brazil, and the U.S., where she now resides. She and Curto are joined by Scott Kettner for the Montpelier program.
